Our Charitable Funds is an independent and dedicated charity that plays a vital role in supporting both LPFT and Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust to make a difference to service user care.

It supports innovative projects to enhance services and facilities that would otherwise not be funded by the NHS.

During 2015/16 alone it spent more than £150,000 on improving patient care and supporting our staff with additional training.  Some of the purchases made were:

•    Harry Potter World coach trip for Ash Villa patients
•    hutch and equipment for therapeutic rabbits on Langworth Ward, Lincoln
•    items for therapeutic garden activities at the Manthorpe Centre, Grantham

The charity raises its money in many ways; staff and patients often run various sponsored events, including cake sales, balls and other activities.  Plus generous donations from patients and their families are very gratefully received.
Every penny counts, and is spent as wisely as possible to ensure funds go to help local people and our patients.  We are happy to keep in touch and let you know how your money has been spent.

Whilst the charity’s legal trustee is Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, its activity is governed by a highly qualified board of trustees and advisors with representation from both NHS trusts. Its vision is to promote excellence in healthcare by raising and investing funds to improve the healthcare environment.

Charitable Funds is registered with the Charity Commission and its registration number: 1055217
